Pam Reed Announces Record Attempt for 2019
Legendary Ultra Runner Announces New Date for Transcontinental Crossing of the US
By: Pam Reed
In a career that spans over 3 decades, Pam is one of the most decorated ultra runners ever, with multiple wins at the Badwater 135, dubbed the "Toughest Foot Race on Earth" by Outside Magazine, World Records in the 24 Hour and 48 Hour Races and well 100 finishes in 100-mile races. She has shared "that all of these races have been training for her ultimate goal, the Transcontinental Record." Dubbed the PR PROJECT, her record attempt will kick off in California in the fall of 2019.
The PR PROJECT will also serve as a platform to raise awareness about a mental health concern facing 16.1 million American adults every year: depression. Despite a stellar racing career, Pam herself has struggled with the disorder and wants to use the PR PROJECT as a vehicle to advance the conversation about mental health. A portion of the funds raised for the PR PROJECT will go directly to mental health charities in key cities across the US.
